Hope for Augusta Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

April 21, 2020

Our parents and caregivers told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Augusta chiropractor does today! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not likely when we were young and maybe a small number who are older and wiser now. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic for Augusta neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic with tips on how to avoid posture-influenced pain and misery.


Slouching posture is just not good, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is connected to things like pain, depression, and stress as well as lower levels of general health, emotional well-being, and energy/fatigue. (1) Spinal angles need to be respected which slouching do not do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle had a significant role in whether a person experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was not too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced way. (3) This concept of balance makes good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain episodes.


Back pain sufferers can explain to us chiropractors what they believe brings on their pain. Active movements (35%), static postures (28.1%), overdoing a task (5.3%), biomechanical issues, lack of exercise, work and medications are on the list. Some Augusta back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical issues like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Augusta chiropractor understands how beneficial our Augusta back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain helps them recover. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great results!


Could today’s fancy tech improve posture? Potentially, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is effective; feedback changes habits. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day boosted participants’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture contrasted with a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – including your Augusta chiropractor – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not very good at it on our own! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is here to help.
